EMU at Lancaster

Covid case monitoring on the Lancaster site is located at emu.edu/lancaster/covid-faq#monitoring

All EMU at Lancaster staff are working remotely. 

Based on current and anticipated COVID-19 community transmission metrics in the region, EMU at Lancaster will begin the spring semester with fully remote learning. 

Metrics will be monitored on a weekly basis and when CDC and PA Department of Health guidelines indicate it is prudent to do so, in-person classes will resume. Faculty are making flexible plans that will facilitate this transition when it becomes possible.  

Barring the emergence of COVID-19 positive cases, Lancaster aviation students will continue their 1:1 in-person flight training at AeroTech Services, Inc. throughout the Christmas Break and into the start of the Spring term while maintaining stringent mitigation protocols

WCSC will provide protocols and more information to students registered in their program this fall.
